the big yellow TJ

Post by budke on 12/28/2011, 3:59 pm

I'm Aaron, also know as Budke over on Matanzas. Many of you know me but some of you don't. I used to drive a 92 YJ sahara until I rolled it.
Now I have an 04 TJ, its nice and yellow. You've probably seen me driving around the Orange Park area.






I no longer have those fender flares on the jeep though, so it looks a little different now.
I look forward to doing some wheeling with you guys after I find out why my jeep makes funny noises when in 4wd under stress.

Under load? Ouch! Sounds like a bearing in the obvious choices of front diff or transfer case. Don't know how you would specify it without tearing it down. Maybe looking at the fluids????

Not quite yet. I'm leaning toward mellow yellow. Due to my "calm" wheeling style. Laughing


Thanks for the welcome guys!

Its been a while since I updated, or even been over here. I know I know, slackin!! lol
But, heres the update
Ford 8.8, 3.73 gears, disc brakes, trac lok LSD.


Was missing a few bolts but have since got them from the JY. Now just need to get new pads and parking brake shoes plus a few other odds and ends.

This is what I will be getting to attach it to the jeep
Artec TJ swap/truss kit


Then, both front and rear will be getting regeared to 4.56. Already have the r&p for the d30.
